visit with the practice nurse

Well - not much help really - just got a referral to a diabetes information meeting.

I did find an old tester, a One touch Ultra 2 - it used to belong to my mother in law. I bought strips and lancets on my way out of the clinic and used them when I got back. The reading is 10.4, which as my diagnostic reading at about the same time was 17.1mmol/l it is something of an improvement. The meter is not calibrated, though, so I can only really use it for comparison with itself - though that is quite a difference.

I am sleeping less, and doing more, which is good.

my lunch before diagnosis would probably have been a corned beef sandwich with half a tomato - now I am just not eating the bread.
